blue drops

it rains again
something about grey skies darkens the mind, 
makes it more blue
its not that i feel like the man on the picture, 
its just a illustration i made for the nlp-book,
but some last sunny days would be welcome

two friends

Tomorrow were off to Denmark and the small, dark and smokey place called Mojo.
its time for some blues and thats the end of this well spent home-time we had for about a month
and the start of a autumn full of touring and music.
Im looking forward to the adventures to come 
 but at the same time it has been really good to just stay at home,
I love my home and to finally have the time to bee in it full time is really a privilege.
I hope i have not forgot how to be social during this time..

But so long Rude and hello the rest of the world!

gray days

it rains...and rains..

the white horse photos

I took this session of photos of a white horse a couple of years ago
 and one of the photos then became the cover of my husbands record, 
its such a perfect contrast between a text and a image..

Barr ♥ Elle Deco = True

Im a bit rosy on the cheeks when tell you about this..

In the springtime i got a mail from Elle Deco in France,
where they told me that they where going to write about my blog in the September issue,
I could hardly believe this to be true,
 how on earth could someone find my little blog in the universe of blogs!?
and more unbelievable, it was Elle Deco France who had found it..
one of the best interior magazines...

the summer went by and i still had trouble believing this was true..
and then, yesterday, i got a mail
its true..

this is what they wrote:

A veritable treasure trove of patterns, colours and materials, the photos and sketches by young Petra Wester Norgren are so many paths to follow. In order to amass research drawings and draw inspiration, she created Barr8 while studying Textile Design in Sweden

thank you Elle Deco France!
